Through the generous support of our alumni and donors, the Department of Plant Biology is able to provide several scholarships, awards and other funds to enhance our teaching and research missions. For our undergraduate and graduate students, we are fortunate to be able to offer memorial scholarships, achievement awards, and other awards. We appreciate any and all contributions to help support our students.
Although general funds to support the Department of Plant Biology have existed for some time, more recently the Plant Biology Greenhouse Renovation Fund was established to help support crucial infrastructural improvements. Please visit the this page to learn more about this important project.
